Professional Career

Brosmer went to Los Angeles and was immediately invited to pose for Alberto Vargas and Earl Moran, two of the most well-known pin-up painters of the day. Her aunt encouraged her to return to New York City in 1950, and the two of them settled there. Brosmer developed her photographic portfolio while attending Manhattan’s George Washington High School.

Despite her age, Brosmer worked as a commercial model for the following four years, appearing on the covers of many of the omnipresent postwar “pulps”: popular romance and crime periodicals and novels. “When I was 15, I got done up to seem like I was approximately 25,” she revealed.

Glamour appearances in Picture Show (December 1950, cover); People Today (July 1954, centre-spread); Picture (January 1955); and Modern Man (July 1955) are among her most well-known photo work from this time period. She also worked as a fashion model, posing for Christian Dior in 1954.

In the early 1950s, she won a number of beauty pageants in the New York region, the most renowned of which was “Miss Television,” for which she appeared in TV Guide as well as on the shows of Steve Allen, Milton Berle, Jackie Gleason, and others.

Brosmer stopped appearing as a pin-up after she married, but she was still shot often. She was often featured in Weider magazines for many years, promoting a variety of exercise goods. She remained a prominent figure in the many publications, and she was frequently featured in their editorial photography.

She featured in several photographic layouts during the 1960s and 1970s, as well as on the covers of Weider publications such as Jem, Vigor, and Muscle Builder. Her following cover appearances were frequently partnered with other notable bodybuilders of the period, such as Frank Zane, Mike Mentzer, and Robby Robinson; her final cover was for Muscle and Fitness.

Betty Weider, her married name, was a regular contributor writer for Muscle and Fitness for almost three decades. Betty focused on her own monthly M&F articles, “Body by Betty” and “Health by Betty,” as her writing style matured. She also served as an associate editor for Weider’s Shape magazine, which is geared at women.

Pin-ups of Brosmer may be seen on the walls of the MP barracks in The Dirty Dozen (1967). In the documentary Pumping Iron (1977), posters of her may be seen on gym walls, and in Pumping Iron II: The Women (1985), she makes a cameo as an audience member during a bodybuilding competition.
